Revival Keys, Review

A local Ottawa author, D. Patricka Ives, has published her second book, Revival Keys.  Under the religious genre, this is an interesting history and interpretation of various times of Christian revival from the very first instance of the descending of the Holy Spirit on the followers of Christ in the Upper Room to present day revivals.

This is a very well researched rendering of the history of the Azusa St. revival, the Ulster revival, and the Welsh revival.  But it goes further than that.  It not only shows how revival can take hold of a church community and completely revitalize it but gives 5 key elements that will enable individuals to experience their own revival and put the past where the past belongs — as it says in the scriptures — along with all their sins “into the depths of the sea” (Micah 7:19).

D. Patricka Ives’ book is not a long read and it is easy to follow and understand.  She quotes such references as Charles Spurgeon, Billy Graham, and A. W. Tozer as well as the Bible but has still managed to make it a personal journey for both herself and the reader.  For anyone seeking a new start, this is a good beginning.  It is available in hard copy or as an ebook from Amazon.  Her first book, Speak the Truth, Face the Facts is also available there. * * * *

About mysm2000

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.
